Richmond VA > Parking > Fan District

Last Updated: 2018-09-04

Ordinance 2008-105-84 which divided the Fan District into two zones was adopted by City Council on May 12, 2008.

Richmond's Fan neighborhood has limited parking for residents therefore, parking without a permit on designated residential streets in the Fan is restricted to residents (see definition below) of the Fan District and guests of the residents (with a temporary permit or an annual visitors pass).

The decal helps to ensure that residents of densely populated areas have reasonable access to parking near their residences. Cars parked in violation will be ticketed and possibly towed.

The ordinance specifies that home owners can purchase permits for all vehicles they own, and two annual visitor passes. Renters, with the appropriate approval of the property owner, can only purchase permits for their vehicles.

The city began enforcement of the new blocks noted above on August 3, 2009. Vehicles without the appropriate permit/pass will be ticketed by our on-street parking enforcement personnel. If you are a resident, you can buy a permit by visiting
